Moniker.com announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with NameMedia to provide premium domains for purchase at Moniker’s MarketPlace, a full-service online domain transaction platform.
“Moniker’s partnership with NameMedia will allow our customers access to premium domains, giving them more options when acquiring a new website address,” said Monte Cahn, co-founder and CEO of Moniker.com. “Through this new partnership, Moniker’s MarketPlace will now be populated with an excess of three million domains available for purchase.”
Visitors to the Moniker homepage who search for a new domain to register, or those going to the MarketPlace site for domain sales, will now receive a wider selection of results, including those domains that are available for immediate purchase from NameMedia’s Domain Listing Service.
In addition to unregistered domains, users searching for new domain registrations will be offered an additional list of domains that are already owned, similar to real estate listings. This will significantly increase the number of marketable domains to choose from and will provide the buyer with the means to buy the perfect domain.
